Maggie Stiefvater, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, (2014), 391p
I really have been putting off reading this book, not because I didn’t like the series. In fact the opposite is true – I ADORE THIS SERIES! I know that the next book isn’t out until fall and I didn’t want to devour this in on sitting and be left starving for Stiefvater until then. But I did it anyway. Because I’m a glutton for punishment.
We pick up right where we left off: Blue’s mom is missing. The Raven boys and Blue head back to school. Glendower is still hidden. Adam is still magical. Ronan is still brooding and dreamy. Noah is still smudgy. Gansey is still determined and minty. And Blue is in deeper than ever before.
I have been team “Gansey-Blue hook-up party of two” since the beginning, but a new super cute team AKA “Adnan” (which reminds me of Serial Podcast, which leaves me longing for season two, sigh) is perking my interest. I love how strong Blue’s bonds are with all of the boys now. She’s not an outcast. She’s vital.
I’m really hoping that Stiefvater doesn’t follow through with her murderous Gansey plotline – which isn’t a spoiler because it’s been hammered out throughout the series. I adore him.
Now to wait. Til fall. And try not to get my hopes up about anything posted on Stiefvater’s Twitter between now and then.
